SF Eater: “The Essential San Francisco Pizza Restaurants” includes Pizzaiolo on Their List!

“Charlie Hallowell made his name putting out masterful California pies at this Temescal favorite, with a wood-burning oven that produces a beautifully spotted crust and excellent local produce on top (try the white potato pie with pancetta and fontina or the tomato pie with housemade sausage and cream). Its sister restaurant Boot & Shoe Service, located on West Grand Ave., is also a winner.”



Read the complete list here.

We are Michael Bauer’s Favorite Pizza in the East Bay!

When asked what his favorite pizza in the East Bay is, Michael Bauer mentioned Pizzaiolo and Boot & Shoe Service!


From a reader: I am looking for a great pizza place in the East Bay/Oakland area. Which is your favorite?


Two places come quickly to mind: Pizziaolo and Boot & Shoe Service, both owned by Charlie Hallowell, who worked many years at Chez Panisse and uses the same keen sensibilities. Both locations have similar menus that go beyond the excellent pizza. Not only do I love the pizza but they have some of the best salads I’ve had, and at Boot & Shoe Service the cocktails are also first rate.

(P.S. He went to Boot & Shoe and wrote me back: “Best pizza since the pizza I had in Naples.”)
